“I treat people according to their individual needs so anyone could benefit from my approach to massage”
Holistic Massage, Reflexology
Who can benefit from my treatments?
I treat people according to their individual needs so anyone could benefit from my approach to massage -whether someone simply wants to ‘switch off’ and be pampered, relax deeply or has specific aches and pains which need addressing with deep tissue massage. I do believe though, that if a client remains at least partly engaged and conscious to what they are feeling, physically and/or emotionally that they will receive the most benefit from a session.
I especially enjoy working with women at all stages of pregnancy and giving busy Mums the chance to relax!
What inspires me?
Bodywork, massage or reflexology has helped me personally in so many ways. I can’t think of any work that’s more satisfying than enabling someone to feel more comfortable in themselves. I’ve been a practising therapist for 15 years now and every time I give someone a treatment it’s a reminder to be in the present, notice what is happening and ground myself.
How I like to relax
I love to listen to music and dance – usually with my kids these days. It really helps me unwind from a busy day. I also try and get out of the city to beautiful parts of the country as much as I can for walks and picnics with my family. Mostly though I enjoy regular massage and peace and quiet.
My other interests
Meditation has been an important part of my life for many years and I try and practise regularly, sitting, walking or working.
